Fermented Ingredients

Fermented Ingredients

Used throughout history by cultures all the over the world, fermentation is a natural and age-old method for preserving food and bringing out flavour. But the benefits of fermenting go beyond the practical. Fermentation can make foods more digestible and nutritious, unlocking powerful health results such as:

  • Digestion and pre-digestion of complex foods
  • Antioxidant bio-availability
  • Mineral bio-accessibility
  • Probiotics and good bacteria
  • Alkalizing the body’s pH level
  • Decreasing phytic acid and lectins
  • Increased lysine in grains
  • Catalyzing metabolites

Chlorella, Black Garlic, Apple Cider Vinegar, Ginger, and Cumin – these are just some of the fermented ingredients that can add balance to your daily diet. From homemade kimchi to turmeric smoothies, this group will not only inject lively flavour to your meals but help build a strong foundation of gut-health, better digestion, and overall nutritional wellness.

The market for fermented ingredients is predicted to continue to grow at a strong and steady rate, with commercial interest and public awareness increasing across many sectors. The Korean stock market even has a ‘’Kimchi Index‘ that tracks the pricing of raw ingredients for this fermented staple.
